The Wheel Bearing(s) need to be replaced. They should be bolt-on assembly and are bolted from the back of the steering knuckle. It is easy to remove and replace. Buy your bearing assembly(ies) from an auto parts store versus the dealer to save you a lot of money.

SOURCE: 2005 pontiac grand prix, code p0641 came on. What

DTC P0641 The powertrain control module (PCM) provides a 5-volt reference to the following sensors:

The throttle position (TP) sensor 1
The accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor 2
The engine cooling fan speed sensor
The AC pressure sensor
The fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor
The oil pressure sensor (OPS)
The PCM monitors voltage on the 5-volt reference circuit. If the voltage is higher or lower than required, DTC P0641 will set.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
The PCM detects a voltage that is higher or lower than required on the 5-volt reference circuit. The above condition is present for 1 second. Action Taken When the DTC Sets The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) when the diagnostic runs and fails. The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The control module stores this information in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail. A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes. A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic. Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.

Yes i can be dangerous, depending which issues mentioned above has triggered the code such as a faulty gas peddle position sensor. the code can also cause a reduced engine power to activate.

Thank you for using Fixya and best advice is to have the dealer address these issues. A tech 2 scanner would be needed to address the P0641 DTC code.

On the driver's side under the car in the area of the rear passenger seat is a small silver can with two quick connect barbs and on the other end a threaded connection. This is the fuel filter.

My 2005 Pontiac Sunfire intermittantly grinds when shifting into first gear. This has been happening ever since I took the car in for its 60,000 mile tune-up early this year. I replaced my clutch three...


I believe the problem is the first gear synchronizer. They are what allows the gears to mesh together without grinding. As they wear, they are less able to mesh the gears together without grinding. The first gear gets used the most, so that one usually wears first. Each gear has them, so as time goes on, the others will wear. To replace the synchronizer/s, involves diaasembling the transmission. I would have the transaxle fluid level checked, maybe as simple as that. But usually it's the prior.
